I always knew when mum had been making flapjack while I was at school, I'd come home to find the whole house smelling of syrup and butter... yummy.
The recipe for flapjack is so simple I truly believe anyone can make it. Just follow the easy steps below and you can't go wrong...
350g rolled oats
175g unsalted butter
175g brown sugar
175g golden syrup
A handful of raisins (not traditionally included in flapjack but I love them)
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees and line a baking tray with grease proof paper.
Melt the butter in a pan on a low to medium heat, be really careful not to burn the butter.
As soon as it's melted, remove from the heat, add the sugar and syrup and mix well.
Add the oats and raisins to the butter/syrup mixture and mix until completely covered.
Spoon the mixture into a baking tray and flatten with the back of a wooden spoon or spatula.
Now pop it in the pre-heated oven and bake for 25 mins.
Remove the tin from the oven, don't worry if the flapjack looks too soft and sticky, it will harden once cooled
Score the flapjack into squares - this will make it easier to cut once cool.
Once cool cut into the marked squares and store in an air-tight container, or eat. I know which I'd rather do!
